Econ 120 or Econ 121 Restrictions
Certain sections of both Econ 120 and Econ 121 are intended only for College of Business Administration students and are closed to students in any other major. These CBA-only sections are 3-credit hours, and consist of only a lecture, with no discussion section. Any student in any other college, regardless of major or minor, must take our standard 4-credit hour Econ 120 and 121 courses, which require a lecture and a corresponding discussion section. CBA students are restricted from enrolling in standard 4-credit sections. See below for appropriate sections based on your college.
